Not revealing the destinations she was headed to, her fans' sleuthing led to them discover that the Kapamilya star arrived in Tulum, Mexico to enjoy its lesser known enclaves. Trading in the country's bustling urban sights for those much closer to sea, sand, and sun, Julia's currently enjoying a much-deserved break from her many projects as an actress and model; her teleserye Ngayon at Kailanman with loveteam partner Joshua Garcia had its final episode last January 18. 

The country, though not often visited by many Filipinos, seems to hold a special place in Julia's heart; her birthday last year was decorated in Mexican fiesta-style, complete with banderitas, colorful décor, and lots of floral details.

Continuing to fill her feed with beautiful snaps from the trip (plus a series of lovely OOTDs we'd love to cop), she likewise introduces us to the some of the Yucatan Peninsula's most breathtaking views:

Azulik Hotel, Tutum

Your home away from home makes up a lot of your best travel memories and for Julia, we're sure that her stay at the Azulik will bring smiles to her face for weeks and weeks to come. The hotel boasts of being an eco-friendly property, its most notable features being its architecture, winding pathways that give way to trees, zero-electricity lighting, and a strategic water system that allows both guests and nature to luxuriate in the healing properties of water.

A cenote in Valladolid

Whoever thought that a cenote (a.k.a. a natural formation rock and water that resembles an underground cave) could look so picture-perfect? Julia's just educated us about the beauty of this miracle of nature, thanks to her backview shot of her visit to one.

El Gran cenote

If you're not one for caves, there's still a way to enjoy the turquoise blue water that rests in one. Take the El Gran cenote that tourists enjoy for its almost magical qualities: surrounding limestone rock, snorkeling spots, and a tranquil dock for those with busy minds and restless hearts to relax on.

A trip to a seaside town will never be complete without dropping by its local cafe where ice cream, coolers, smoothies, and fresh fruit bowls are aplenty! Julia brought us to Matcha Mama, a place loved for its plant-based menu and many, many Instagrammable spots.
